Add Some Cheer to Your Holiday Gifts

This perfect stocking stuffer lip balm project has just a little twist to make your gift extra unique. With a blend of Mint Julep and Buttercreme flavors, it’s sweet yet brisk, befitting the season.

Exclusive for our newsletter subscribers: Use this custom label template for our Slidey Lip Tins.

ONE: In a heat safe container, heat the Lip Balm Base until melted.

TWO: To the melted Lip Balm Base, add 1.5 mL Mint Julep Flavor Oil and 1 mL Buttercreme Flavor Oil. Stir until the flavor oils are fully mixed in.

THREE: Pour the Lip Balm Base into the Slidey Lip Tins and allow to fully harden (I waited overnight, but you’d probably be good to go in 3-4 hours).

FOUR: Create a “moat” or stripe legthwise down the middle of the hardened lip balm using the pointy end of a Clean-Up Tool. Save the lip balm that you scrape out in a heat-safe container. We’ll get to that next!

FIVE: Once you have created moat stripes in all of the lip balms, add 1 teaspoon of Lip Balm Base to the reserved lip balm and heat until (re)melted. Add 1 Mini-Scoop of Merlot mica and stir until it is fully mixed and there are no clumps.

SIX: Slowly and carefully pour the Merlot-colored lip balm into the moat stripes in your Slidey Lip Tins.

SEVEN: Allow the Merlot-colored lip balm to fully harden, and use the Clean-Up Tool to fix any dribbles and drops. If there are any gaps between colors, do one or two quick passes over the surface of the lip balm with a heat gun. Slide on the Slidey Tin lids and you’re all set!
